New Yorkers, you’re in for a treat!
Tomorrow (April 26) at 3:00 PM EST., First Lady Michelle Obama will host a 2016 college signing day event in New York City’s Harlem Armory to celebrate over 4,000 high school students, who are going to college next year.
This event is part of the First Lady’s “Reach Higher” initiative, which has been a major success thus far. In addition to the event taking place in New York tomorrow, there have already been more than 1,000 other College Signing Day events taking place in nearly every state nationwide.
The First Lady is encouraging people across the country to join her in marking College Signing Day by wearing college apparel and sharing the importance of higher education on social media through #CollegeSigningDay and #BetterMakeRoom starting tomorrow.
